Work introduction

The Turkish composer Ulvi Cemâl Erkin was one of The Turkish Five, the first professional composers to want to reform Turkish music in the early 20th century in line with western role models. The suite for orchestra, Köçekce, a dance rhapsody composed in 1943, is one of his best-known works. It refers to the music accompanying a traditional men’s dance and reflects the characteristic harmonies, melodies and rhythms of Turkish music.
